No Menu Bar

I saw a few other posts about this topic but none of the solutions have worked for me. I recently dowloaded audacity and just did my first recording. I ran into trouble and didn’t know how to save the project/file. When I exited audacity it gave me the option to save but it’s only saved as an AUP file which does not work for me. I tried deleting the audacity app and redownloading it. I’m on MacOS 10.5 Catalina and downloaded audacity 2.4.2. Please let me know if there’s an easy fix to this.

Re. “No Menu Bar”: See this post:

“File menu > Save Project > Save Project”

In what way does it “not work” for you?

If you want to create a normal audio file:
“File menu > Export > Export as WAV / MP3 / OGG”

thank you so much
